                  • To combat Russian subs, NATO allies are teaming up to develop unmanned systems at sea

                    https://www.defensenews.com/naval/20...ystems-at-sea/

                    During the July summit, the powers signed onto a plan to jointly pursue technologies aimed at mine and sub hunting, according to an October news release making the agreement public.

                    “The use of unmanned systems is a potentially game changing leap forward in maritime technology,” the release read. “Working alongside traditional naval assets, these unmanned systems will increase both our situational awareness and our control of the seas.”

                            "An expected 50,000 participants from 31 nations will take part, including 10,000 vehicles, 250 aircraft and 65 vessels."
                            https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exerci..._Juncture_2018

                            31 - Sweden and Finland = the rest of 29 NATO members.

                            So all NATO members send at least staff officers. It's kinda fun to watch videos and see how many troops you can recognize.

                            P.S. Yea, I could not find more detailed fact-sheets like the ones for previous years (which is what you wanted). Just photos and videos from the event. Maybe their priority in reporting changed (purposely report it as a NATO affair, which it is, rather than a collection of individual countries; if this is true, it would not be the worst idea).

                            • That's a great point. I was curious how the mid-sized nations were contributing. Those like say the Spanish/Italians/Dutch/Polish.
